1 Adult sitting (incubating/brooding?) in nest. Nest is shallow. Alert if I get within 50 ft of base of cell tower on foot. Approach by adult with wonky feather on right wing. Did no land. Much alerting/calling. No delivery of fish or next materials by male observed.

Repair to fence at the base of cell tower. NOISY! I am assured that neither tower nor nest will be removed as part of redevelopment of retail space at 1200 Washington Street, Hanover, MA 02339. Delivery of fish to nest.
